To help catechists prepare their young people for Palm Sunday, this Lenten activity demonstrates how to make a paper palm branch. For this activity, we visit a site we have been to before: http://www.sundayschoolkids.com/activities-lent-easter/1-straw-palm-instru.htm.
- Here’s how the folks at Sunday School Kids describe this activity:
After having experienced distributing of real palm fronds in Sunday School for many years, I think paper palms are much safer. I’ve had palm fronds up to 6 feet long, and these “spears” were rather sharp. In the hands of children, they can be an attractive nuisance for sword fights, and an inadvertent object for poking people.
This activity looks like a lot of fun. Enjoy! Click here!
